    I wanted to do the same and experimented with some options.

    Probably the best way is to use a Wordpress plugin. I like WP-Wall, which lets you put a chat window in the sidebar. See an example at http://www.liverpoollatest.co.uk/ over in the right hand side.

    An even simpler options is to just use a page setup as a chat page. Create a blank page, enable comments and call it Chat. Wordpress will do the rest. A nice advantage of doing it this way is that Wordpress will automatically split it into subpages when the comments get too long. You can use a plugin like Comments Notifier or Thank-me-later to keep people coming back over and over to see what others have said.

    It doesn't work properly in free Wordpress themes.

    WP Wall seem like just a shoutbox.
    what i'd like is a live chatbox that I can reply back in a matter of seconds since i'd be doing a techsupport.
    i think acobot can do the thing

    Before making any decision, please make sure that you that consider different aspects of using live chat on your website:
    1) Traffic and number of visitors willing to chat (if the traffic is low, don't bother with live chat - there will be no one to chat with. Work on SEM/SEO instead.)
    2) how big your chat team will be (just you, several people, entire team?)
    3) where and when do you want to use chat (by the desk during working hours, on the go, wherever/whenever you can?)

    not necessarily though, if you get to have 15/hits a day because you provide computer services in a particular city. it will be helpful still after all those people won't be chatting just because they like to mingle. They sure need computer repair why they've reached my site and some of them emailed me wanting to chat so that they can better provide details of what they're experiencing.
